They'd promised their families they'd come back soon. They more than kept their word. Went as mere men. Came back as heroes. In coffins.

Wondering why i put up such a post, well right now my blood is boiling after having seen a survey report done on the ratio of the youngsters who are desserting the force in the name of better prospects. Bloodyhell! I ask those buggers, did the army came at their doorsteps to offer them the jobs or they themselves chose it? It was so ridiculous to read the reasons which they came up....as if the country forced them into army...As of now the army has courtmartialed only a couple of such officers in the last 9 years or so, i say every bugger who leaves under such pretext shud be severely dealt with...coz the amount of money spent in making those boys into men is quite hefty and the time and energy spent by the trainers is even more precious...

Lot of ppl criticize me for my My country's best no matter what attitude, but i tell u i only believe in a simple theory and that is, if i hv chosen to serve my country i'll do it with the best of my capabilities and honesty and only think of the best and not anything else coz i was not forced to work here, i chose it in complete sanity. As far as the public's point of view on the enforcement agencies is concerned well being a part of it for 9 years now i can say that its upto u to preserve ur heart and soul irrespective of the conditions and circumstances. The first thing we learn in our training in any of the agencies are and which i guess most of the senior and junior officers hv completely put in the dustbins :-

The safety, honor and welfare of your country come first always and everytime.

The honor, welfare and comfort of the men you command come next.

Your own ease, comfort and safety come last, always and everytime.


Anyway, to hell with such weaklings like they say its better to hv a strong enemy rather than a weak friend.

@Uttara
Its not abt taking things for granted, its abt being loyal and not dessert ur country in the name of better prospects coz nobody came to u for ur services, u went for it.

@Amy

@Shilpa

I deleted my last comment.

When i rethink it. I realised that is something we can find everywhere in the human race. I guess thats why some people have the gifts and passions to carry the fight.

You know this view of yours made me think some stuff.

Thanks much.:)

I guess we will never know what it feels like if we have never worn the shoes of a soldier for once.

I guess thats why some people have the gifts and passions to carry the fight.***U r right and my only question to such ppl is that does the country drags them for it or they themselves choose it and when u choose something with open eyes whats the point in cribbing later on....

In that survey report some reasons they hv mentioned r just ridiculous...for eg:-
#Life's very tough....lol as if they didnt knew how it wud be if they go for it.

You know this view of yours made me think some stuff.***What? :)

I guess we will never know what it feels like if we have never worn the shoes of a soldier for once.***Absolutely.

Agree wif ya.

*****What? :)

About how most of us choose to yap more than know what is the reality behind. And about how most of us would opt for non-military jobs that involves our lives.

Tats all..:)

Well,some peple only want to eat the pie and dont want tosweat making it....its not about army or any services...as you said no-one had forced them.....moreover, having seen closely how much the army spends on training officer, its a crime to act so irresponsibly....more so when the establishment has itself made provisions for its staff to voluntarily leave services after a period of time if some one is not satisfied with his or her professional growth in the army....
as my brother says....it takes a lot to get in the army....but a hell lot more to stay in it...guess some people dont have it...
last but not the least, to quote field marshal sam manekshaw -"It's nonsense that people join the army to serve the country,like the politicians do it for the sake of the country"
